This is the commuinity to share interests in BDSM literature in English, mainly on Japanese literature and its BDSM depictions. As I want to welcome those who know or not yet know much about Japanese literature and its BDSM relations, I think it is also a good idea to share anything related to BDSM and fetish by ideally linking to anythinhg in general, or any literature (even non Japanese). That way perhaps we can stimulate each other and maybe it will lead us to be curious and start reading more BDSM books or simply develop something different at personal or non personal levels that can help build this community some interesting ways.
Right, this is the place to freely discuss stuff on:
Tanizaki, Mishima, Kouno Taeko, Kanai Mieko,
Matsuura Rieko (available in French not yet in English though amazing queer women SM dipctions - oh, the film "natural woman" is based on her literature of the same title although the author seems unhappy about the turnout), Shouno Yoriko, Yoshiyuki Jyunnosuke, Numa Shouzo, Takahashi Yumiko and... what else?
What do you like about it?
What is your favorite scenes?
What you don't get and what is your interpretation?
Or, shall we simply talk about BDSM and fetishism?
Let's celebrate this culture and share our desire, passion, fetish, sexuality, fantasy or even reluctancy...
This group is open for everyone.
*Until I get an idea of whether anyone is interested in this topic, I will leave this community open to the public.
